Design

The Contest 32 CS is a recreational keelboat, built predominantly of glassfibre, with wood trim. It has a masthead sloop rig or option ketch rig, a centre cockpit, a spooned raked stem, a vertical transom, a skeg-mounted rudder controlled by a wheel and a fixed fin keel. It displaces 14,300 lb (6,486 kg) and carries 6,380 lb (2,894 kg) of ballast.

The boat has a draft of 5.25 ft (1.60 m) with the standard keel and 4.25 ft (1.30 m) with the optional shoal draft keel.

The boat is fitted with a Swedish Volvo Penta MD 17C 36 hp (27 kW) diesel engine. The fuel tank holds 48 U.S. gallons (180 L; 40 imp gal) and the fresh water tank has a capacity of 77 U.S. gallons (290 L; 64 imp gal).

The accommodation includes an aft cabin with a double and single berth, two main cabin settees and a drop leaf table and a forward "V"-berth. The interior is finished in teak or mahogany wood.

The galley is amidships on the starboard side and includes a three-burner liquid petroleum gas stove. The head is to port, opposite the gallery and includes a shower. Hot and cold pressure water was a factory option. A navigation station is provided on the port side, forward of the head. All three cabins have ventilation hatches.

A second smaller steering wheel can be fitted on the forward port bulkhead allowing the boat to be used as a motorsailer. There is a bow anchor locker. A spinnaker of 918 sq ft (85.3 m2) was optional.

The mainsail has slab reefing. There are two genoa winches and a third mast-mounted winch for the halyards. A boom vang was a factory option.
